Iron Horse Trail

The Iron Horse Trail provides a scenic and historic route linking the cities of Waterloo and Kitchener along a former railway corridor.

Part of the Trans Canada Trail, the Iron Horse Trail is 5½ kilometres (3.4 miles), connecting Waterloo Park to Victoria Park and uptown Waterloo to downtown Kitchener.

The trail became a reality when Waterloo and Kitchener formed a partnership to jointly purchase the abandoned rail line to preserve the corridor as an important part of the two cities' heritage and for use as a recreation and transportation trail.


The Iron Horse Trail runs between Erb Street West in Waterloo and Ottawa Street in Kitchener.
